We’re happy to welcome two new members to the WSPC team:
Strategic Business Manager, WSPC
Melissa’s love and passion for independent pharmacy began from her experience working at a local independent pharmacy on the Central Coast of California at the age of 15. She worked her way up to pharmacy technician, to store manager.
In 1992, she went to work for Bergen Brunswig, which we now know as AmerisourceBergen. In Melissa’s 25-year career with AmerisourceBergen, she held several different positions. Her most recent role was as a sales executive for community and specialty pharmacy. Her knowledge and love for Good Neighbor Pharmacy are inspiring.
Melissa understands the rewards and complexities of owning an independent business. Together with her husband, she owns a dry cleaner business which has been family-owned since 1960. Melissa enjoys helping independent pharmacy owners grow and succeed in todays changing market.
Sales Operations Partner, WSPC
Dianna has over ten years of experience in the retail pharmacy industry with AmerisourceBergen. Her time with ABC included managing their PSAO helpdesk, customer transitions, training/process improvement, sales, and customer onboarding.
She has worked in the pharmacy industry most of her career. While attending pharmacy school at Butler University for two years, she worked in a retail pharmacy and then for Medispan, now known as First Data Bank. She has an AA in medical laboratory technology and has worked as a lab tech at St. Joseph Hospital in South Bend, Indiana. While most of her career has been in the medical field, her roles have focused on customer service and support, for which she also completed a certification program in customer service from Indiana University. Dianna also has a BA in Liberal Studies with concentrations in Biology, Chemistry and Social Science.
Dianna was born in Southern California, but she was raised in Indiana. She is a single mom of four adult children and two grand-cats. (Her daughter and son-in-law have two cats, Cleo and Titan, whom they love like their children.) She enjoys hiking, cooking, reading, photography, and missions work. She recently returned from a trip to South Africa, where she used her photography skills to record the trip and assist in several areas. The team worked alongside the local group to host a camp for abused and neglected children. They also built a playground and a clubhouse for a mentoring program.
